This Is Us (s02e14)

Ever since ‘This Is Us’ revealed Jack Pearson didn’t live long enough to see the 21st century, everyone has been waiting impatiently to see how exactly he died. The recent episode (s02e14), which is a Jack-death-centric one, reveals everything and it’s a painful one. 

If you haven’t watched it, go do so before SPOILERS fall on you. 

I’ll just drop something here. Remember how Kate has always blamed herself for her dad’s death? Yes. She deserves the blame and more. She did kill her dad. To find out how this happened, you should go watch the episode. ✌. Mandy Moore’s performance is killing it! Those tears. The intensity with which she brings forth Rebecca’s emotions is nothing short of beautiful.
Randal, Kevin, Toby and Miguel also make appearances, but this episode wasn’t really for them to shine. Lest I forget, Randal’s first born Tess did shine in this episode. I liked the twist even though I saw it coming (it was the same twist employed in the first episode of the show: the one that got me engrossed). #ThisIsUs #NBC #JackPearson #KatePearson

Rinzy Reviews ‘Big Little Lies’

Have you watched HBO’s ‘Big LITTLE Lies’?
If you haven’t, you should see it. It’s one interesting miniseries later turned into a show (even though I think they shouldn’t have) but it’s still a good watch. I hope I made sense. 

The show starts with a flashward mystery, somebody dies and we have to guess who it was.

In a small town where nothing ever happens, we have three women passing through various struggles as women and as parents:

We have a young single-mom running 🏃 from her past whilst still trying to give her son the best life she can afford; another woman who chooses to remain in an abusive 😞 marriage thinking its a form of love expression between her and her husband because of the sex that always comes out of it; and another woman jiggling between keeping her home in order and being the town’s pseudo-queen bee; these and many more make up the very story of the people living in a small town by the sea. 

Though I had a problem with the predictability of the story, I was okay with its execution. It was a good watch and I recommend it to those who haven’t seen it yet. 

Lest I forget, the show boasts of an impressive cast, from my personal person Alexander Skarsgård to Nicole Kidman to Shailene Woodley to Reese Witherspoon to Laura Dern to Zoe Kravitz, the show isn’t short of impressive faces who bring their A-game to the table.

Rinzy Reviews ‘Marvel’s The Punisher’

Rinzy Reviews ‘Marvel’s The Punisher’
The Netflix corner of Marvel has always been praised for its realism and gritty take on superheroes. With ‘The Punisher’, Marvel makes its best show grounded in so much realism.

I loved ‘The Punisher’ because of Jon Bernthal take on it; a film production is only as good as its cast and story – both requirements check out.
Frank Castle the raging killer was given humanity, depth and his zeal to kill wasn’t toned down.

Though the show had more episodes than necessary (13 seemed much), it was a very good watch.


I loved the supporting casts – Ben Barnes’ Billy Russo made an interesting villain, Agent Medina was a piece of work, Micro was good, and a host of others. I was excited to see Deborah Ann Wool’s Karen Page.
I enjoyed the show and I hope the next time I see Frank Castle in the MCU, he’s killing lots of people mercilessly.

Rinzy Reviews Crisis on Earth-X

SPOILER!!!
WTF! Victor Garber’s send forth could only be realized by killing off his character Martin Stein…. why?

On this note I begin my review of 2017’s Arrowverse massive crossover.

Ever since ‘The Flash’ was spun out of Arrow in 2014, the Arrowverse has continue to grow with more characters added to its ever growing list and its crossover becoming more and more ambitious. This year’s wasn’t an exception. It’s the best so far.

A lot of things happened. We had the disaster wedding of the moment, courtesy of Nazi soldier’s from Earth-X interrupting Barry and Iris. We also had them getting married at the end courtesy of John Diggle, with a spoiler, Oliver and Felicity also got married… I didn’t see that coming.

We got to see evil doppelgangers of our heroes and the return of the Reverse Flash. I think the producers have gotten tired of explaining his return, so much, that they just skipped it, on purpose, this time. Barry needs his Eobard, this we know, it’ll be easier if they just stopped killing and rewriting him. 

I enjoyed the crossover. An article from ‘Screen rant’ said it was a better DC team up than the cinema-released Justice League. Ouch!

The stakes keep getting bigger, more expensive, I really wonder what they’ll do next year.

All shows in the Arrowverse return for their mid season finales next week.

‘House Of Cards’ To Resume Production On Its Sixth And Final Season

‘House of Cards’ to resume production on its sixth and final season early next month.
Following the needs of several sexual allegations levelled against lead Kevin Spacey, he was fired and the show’s production subsequently halted.

With this letter, we can rest again knowing production will resume shortly… without Spacey of course.

Here’s the letter.

Dear Cast and Crew,

As we move into the holidays, we want to express our appreciation for all of the meaningful messages of support we have received from you and want to update all of our loyal cast and crew on our progress and where things currently stand.

We continue to work with Netflix with the hope of resuming production soon. As we continue these discussions, we have determined together that the crew will be paid for an additional two week hiatus – beginning on November 27th and continuing through December 8th.

In addition to the writers, there will be a small contingency of office/accounting staff who will remain in the production office on a continuous basis. Our hope is that the entire crew will be able to reconvene when production resumes, but we want you to know that we will certainly understand if crew members need to find other work in the interim, which will prevent them from re-joining us. We sincerely appreciate all you have done.

Cast and other union members who are not actively working will be paid in accordance with applicable union guidelines through this period and we will be reaching out directly to your representatives to work through the details; we will get to everyone as quickly as possible and appreciate all of your patience here.

These last two months have tested and tried all of us in ways none of us could have foreseen. The one thing we have learned throughout this process is that this production is bigger than just one person and we could not be more proud to be associated with one of the most loyal and talented production cast and crews in this business.

We will provide an additional update by 12/8/17.

Thank you all.

Pauline Micelli
